Normani Kordei—still riding high on her Top 40 radio chart-topper ("Love Lies") with Khalid—just blessed us with another fiery banger. For "Checklist," Normani enlisted Calvin Harris and WizKid. The collab continues her rapid-fire solo career releases, following her six-year stint with Fifth Harmony, including "Swing" with Quavo and Davido as well as the "Body Count" remix with Jessie Reyez and Kehlani. 

 

Amid the other 11 new additions to my BAH's Bangers playlist is rapper-singer Jon Bellion's contemplation on relationships in the digital age ("Conversations With My Wife") and Irish pop singer Dermot Kennedy's admission of being bewitched by a lover ("Power Over Me"). Meanwhile, South Korean girl group Blackpink brings its K-pop flavor to "Kiss and Make Up" with English hitmaker Dua Lipa. Rounding out this week's playlist is Zara Larsson's "Ruin My Life," Ten Fé's "Won't Happen," Zak Abel's "You Come First" featuring Saweetie, Before You Exit's "Silence," King Henry's "What About Me," Glades's "Nervous Energy," Thomston's "The Heights" and Khalid's "Better."
